‘Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki’ Clip: The Legendary Anime Filmmaker Works With His First CG Creation
Posted on Sunday, December 16th, 2018 by Hoai-Tran Bui
Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki chronicles the inevitable un-retirement of its legendary subject, but despite the predictable return of Hayao Miyazaki to the world of animation, the Kaku Arakawa documentary has a few surprises hidden up its sleeves. Namely, Miyazaki’s first dalliance with an entirely CG-animated project. The famous advocate for traditional hand-drawn animation, who notoriously once called an AI-animated short “an insult to life itself,” tackles his first CG-animated film with the short Boro the Caterpillar.
In a new Never-Ending Man Hayao Miyazaki clip released by GKIDS, the documentary captures the momentous scene in which Miyazaki encounters his first CGI creation.
